A man has been arrested in connection with an attempted abduction in a Queens supermarket parking lot, police say.

38-year-old Vladimer Suero of Brooklyn was arrested and charged with kidnapping, acting in a manner injurious to a child and harassment.

The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. in the parking lot of a Key Food on Jamaica Avenue in Queens Village, and the mother and daughter were walking hand in hand.

"I saw a man approaching us," the mother said in Spanish. "He grabbed me, my daughter, and told her, 'You're coming with me.' I pulled her away from him, and he ran away."

The mother grabbed her daughter back, and Suero fled west on Jamaica Avenue toward 212th Street.

"I said to him, 'What's wrong with you?' And he didn't really answer and I pulled her back," she said.
